Houston Texans second-year wide-out Lestar Jean will miss at least one game because of a meniscus injury he suffered in the Texans 31-25 win over the Denver Broncos.

The win moved Houston to 3-0 for the first time in franchise history.

Jean had a career long 46-yard catch against the Broncos, but will undergo arthroscopic surgery Tuesday.

“I would say he would definitely be out this week, but we think it’ll be a brief return here,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Monday. “Hopefully a couple weeks.”

Houston hopefully won’t need Jean this weekend when the Texans host division rival Tennessee. The Texans would understandably like to get him back for the stretch of three games heading into the bye week after the Titans, which includes a trip to the Jets, before coming home for two against Green Bay and Baltimore.

Rookie Keshawn Martin will move up the depth chart against Tennessee while fellow rookie DeVier Posey should be active for the first time.

Speaking of Posey…

“He’s had two good weeks of practice,” Kubiak said. “He was actually our scout team player of the week last week or the first week. I feel good about him. He’s a guy we’ll probably put behind Kevin and let Keshawn work behind Andre since Keshawn has worked both spots.

Jean wasn’t the only Texans player injured in the Denver game as back-up safety Quintin Demps underwent thumb surgery Monday, but is expected to play Sunday with a cast.

Quarterback Matt Schaub was a full participant in Monday’s action after losing part of his ear in a vicious hit from Broncos linebacker Joe Mays.

“Matt is fine,” Kubiak said. “He took his normal Monday, worked out with the team and threw a little bit.”
